IBASE Technology, a leading manufacturer of digital signage platforms and digital signage provider Scala have partnered to deliver embedded digital signage solutions that enhance hardware and software integration capabilities for system integrators.
The solutions enable high-performance 3D visualized graphics, running under independent VGA graphic memory to secure stability of the processors to run on Scala. Signage vendors can easily perform thorough, heavy loading graphic processing requests based on IBASE digital signage platforms, drastically reducing testing time and complexity.
Compatible with Scala, the IBASE SI-28 Signature Book 2 – a professional-grade digital signage system – packs extreme performance within ultra-compact dimensions. The SI-28 supports four independent HDMI outputs at up to 1080p display resolutions. Combined with an AMD Athlon X2 (dual-core) or X4 (quad-core) CPU, its ATI E4690 GPU is equipped with 320 stream processor cores and 512 MB of GDDR3 video memory. The comprehensive I/O set also includes four USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports, analog audio and an integrated Gigabit LAN interface.
Scala (scala.com) is also compatible with the award-winning IBASE SI-24SD digital signage system. The SI-24SD combines the graphics performance of a discrete ATI E2400 GPU with 128 MB of dedicated GDDR3 video memory and the efficient computing resources of an AMD Athlon-based 1.5 GHz Neo X2 dual-core embedded CPU. It is able to support dual 1080p independent displays with VGA, DVI or HDMI interfaces. Both systems are ideal for digital signage installations which demand a high level of performance, reliability and compactness, where space is at a premium and reliability is not optional.“Followed by continuous reduction of LCD panel pricing, the digital signage market is growing rapidly. Providing powerful and comprehensive digital signage solutions continues to be of vital importance.” said Robert Koolen, Scala’s President. “Scala is pleased to announce partnership with IBASE, a professional marker of powerful digital signage platforms. With support of Scala’s user-friendly interface, platforms from IBASE will be more flexible and accessible for signage vendors.”
